PARK ASSIST LIMITATIONS

WARNING

Park assist is a supplement to, and not a replacement for, good observation and a safe driving style. The driver is responsible for making sure that reversing manoeuvres are carried out safely at all times. Driver distraction can lead to accidents, potentially causing serious injury or death.

CAUTION

Do not aim a high pressure water jet directly at any of the sensors when washing the vehicle. Only use approved vehicle shampoo. Do not use abrasive materials, or hard or sharp objects, to clean the sensors. Failing to follow these guidelines may result in damage to the system, or a system fault.

NOTES

If an approved tow bar is fitted, park assist adjusts to compensate for the extra length.

The park assist system is not available if:

  • The vehicle's speed is greater than 30 km/h (18 mph).

  • All Surface Progress Control (ASPC) is on.

  • Reverse (R) is selected.

  • The suspension height is set to off-road.

  • There is a system fault.

  • A trailer is connected.

The park assist system may provide inaccurate results if:

  • The size or shape of the parking space changes after it was measured.

  • There is an irregular kerb alongside the parking space, or the kerb is covered with leaves, snow, etc.

  • The vehicle is being used to transport a load that extends beyond the perimeter of the vehicle.

  • The sensors are misaligned due to a minor collision or impact.

  • The vehicle had a repair or alteration that was not approved by a retailer/authorised repairer.

  • The vehicle is fitted with non-approved wheels or tyres.

  • The vehicle's tyre pressures are not set to the vehicle’s recommended specification.

  • The vehicle tyres have significant tyre wear.

  • The vehicle is fitted with replacement tyres. After the normal running-in period, the system adapts to the replacement tyres.

  • One of the parked vehicles has an attachment at a raised height such as a flatbed truck, snow plough, or cherry picker.

  • The parking space is located on a corner or bend.

  • The sensors are dirty or covered in mud, ice, or snow, etc.

  • The weather is foggy, raining, or snowing, etc.

  • The road surface is uneven or rutted.

  • The vehicle encounters an obstruction that is thin or wedge shaped.

  • The vehicle encounters an obstruction that is elevated and/or protruding, such as ledges or tree branches.

  • The vehicle encounters an obstruction with corners and sharp edges.

  • A non-approved tow bar or trailer hitch is fitted.

  • The sensors are in close proximity to hot exhaust gases from nearby vehicles.

  • The sensors are in close proximity to noise generated from emergency vehicles, motorbikes, etc.

  • The sensors have been damaged during vehicle cleaning.
